The temperatures are on their way up in Lake Worth and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple tips on what to watch for and signs that you could need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t running properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling the results in your home, it’s a good indication that you’ll need someone to check it out. Keep in mind if it’s an extremely hot day, it might take longer for your home to cool down.
- Decrease in airflow – If the air coming out of your vents doesn’t seem to be coming out as fast or strong as usual, there may be something wrong. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Smyth Air Conditioning Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling. There are a lot of moving parts inside your air conditioner, which can become loose or damaged due to wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps highlight issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Smyth Air Conditioning Inc this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner.
